Write It Down
Once you write your ideas down, they become permanent for all time. Make a list of all the things you need to do today. Then number them in order of their importance. Write the most important item first. Make sure you complete the first task before you go to item number two.
Most people do just the opposite and wonder why they never get anywhere. Sometimes the most important is the most difficult to complete. Then, procrastination takes over and it becomes more difficult the longer you wait. Stress then kicks in; self-doubt kicks in. Important deeds go undone and success becomes a blurred memory. Procrastination is one of the killers of all great things.
Want to get rid of procrastination? It’s easy. When faced with a decision or task and you start to waiver, put your hands together, clap real loud, and say with as much conviction as you can muster, “Do it now!.” In other words, do the thing that’s easy to do. Clap your hands and shout, “Do it now!” Repeat it again, and again, until you have no choice but to make your decision or begin your task. Believe it; it works every time.
Think with your pencil or pen; write down all the ideas you have concerning your task. As you are writing you will tune into that great subconscious power that creates, and you will be surprised at what comes out of you. I know I am doing this when I sit down to write these pages. I have no idea what I’m going to write; the words just come out. Although it’s hard to believe, I don’t really know what I write until Erica my administrative assistant types it up and gives it to me. Somehow it all makes sense.
Write a business plan for your life. No intelligent person would start a business without a plan. Most people have no idea from one day to the next, where they are going. Then, they wonder why they never get anywhere.
Imagine a ship’s captain leaving port without a definite destination and charts on how to reach that destination. You are captain of your ship! If you don’t have a plan completely written down, you will surely end up on the rocks or on some deserted island.
